Safeguarding in the 21st Century – 17th June 2015

Recent high profile cases of abuse have emphasised the diverse and complex risks that

children and young people must navigate day to day. In light of this, the government’s new statutory safeguarding guidance, ‘Keeping Children Safe in Education’ and updated Ofsted’s new section 5 briefing highlight greater expectation on schools to use professional judgement. Therefore, schools will be required to have a better understanding of their pupils and the local context, ensuring a safe and secure school environment.
